Managed Care Organization

Both Managed Care Organizations (MCO) and Third Party Administrators (TPA) play important roles in helping employers manage workers’ compensation costs. If you are responsible for your workers’ comp program, it’s important to have a fundamental understanding of the roles of an MCO and a TPA.

  • What is an MCO?
    Under Ohio's Health Partnership Program, MCOs are responsible for the medical management of Ohio employers' work-related injuries and illnesses. Every employer in Ohio must have an MCO, which is paid for directly by the BWC.

  • What is a TPA?
    A Third Party Administrator (TPA) assists employers in the administrative and financial aspects of a claim. TPA staff typically consists of claim representatives, account representatives, and other workers' compensation professionals.
